Tori Spelling is a tabloid staple and most recently she's been on the cover of everything in the check-out aisle because of her husband Dean McDermott's cheating scandal. But now Spelling and McDermott are going to set the record straight via the best record straightening medium the world knows — a reality TV show. Yeah, another one. Tori Spelling has a new reality show called True Tori and unlike her previous show Tori & Dean, this one looks a little more... well, true.
A synopsis of the show from Lifetime reads,
Intimate, raw, emotional and completely real, Tori will tell her story for the first time as it should be told—by her. Since viewers will be seeing events almost immediately after they occur, nobody knows how the drama will unfold—not Tori, not Dean—and only time will tell if Tori and Dean's marriage survives.
True Tori will be filmed as it goes along which is strange for a reality show. When the show premieres on April 22, filming will have only started three weeks earlier. The show consists of six one-hour long episodes, so it will air while future episode are still being shot.
A promo for the series lives up to Lifetime's claims. Spelling and McDermott are shown in what appears to be a therapy session. McDermott confesses that he was "out of control" and Spelling says, "I can never give him enough sex. He's never going to be happy with just me." So, yeah, "intimate" was extremely accurate.
The end of the clip shows Spelling talking to someone off camera saying, "I'm well aware that this might not have a happy ending." And she still doesn't know and, even worse, the producers still don't know. The producers are supposed to know everything on a reality show! This is insanity! Awkwardly personal insanity.
